Sandalwood is a class of woods from trees in the genus Tantalum. The woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained, and unlike many other aromatic woods, they retain their fragrance for decades. Sandalwood oil is extracted from the woods for use. Both the wood and the oil produce a distinctive fragrance that has been highly valued for centuries, especially in Buddhist temples and prays. Consequently, species of these slow-growing trees have suffered over-harvesting in the past century.
